Clara Blakely, Bilingual Case Manager
Clara joined the Buddy Program as a Bilingual Case Manager in May 2017. She has a B.A. in Spanish and a B.S. in Recreation, which propelled her on an adventurous path in tourism and hospitality. Clara has worked internationally in Taiwan, Mexico, and Panama, along with several exciting U.S. locales including New Orleans and Las Vegas. The last several years have been particularly rewarding, as Clara became an immigration paralegal, diligently working to understand each immigrant client’s story and help them achieve legal status in their adopted country. In particular, she is passionate about assisting children and is excited to embrace her role in facilitating meaningful relationships here in the Roaring Fork Valley. She moved to Colorado in the spring of 2016 and is convinced she’s found her forever home. On the weekends you can find her playing outdoors and being crafty. Her specialty is making piñatas.
